Navigating the regulations around baby carrier compliance labeling for slings, wraps, and other babywearing products can be complicated. They also change from time to time as the baby carrier compliance laws and standards are updated.
In 2022, changes were implemented to the baby carrier compliance labeling rules in the US.
In August of 2022, the US Consumer Product Safety Commission adopted the changes to the standard approved by the ASTM. When they adopted ASTM F2907-22, the US rules for baby carrier compliance labeling changed.
If you’d like to learn more about the process of adopting the updated baby carrier standard, you can read our press release on the subject here: “What’s New in the F2907-22 Sling Standard?”
